the same size as it was when president obama took office, the unemployment rate today would be over 10%. this is a number nobody talks about anymore. it's a stunning number. there's simply not enough people in the workforce. and that's what makes me worry about the long-term viability of the recovery. >> and people are still withdrawn. 169,000 left the labor force in the month of january. that cannot be good. 8.5 million people are not even over the labor force in the past four years. 8.5 million people have withdrawn from the labor force. i mean, that's a terrible number. i'm not making a case, by the way. i'm not a bull on the economy because i think there are too many problems on policies and whatnot. but these jobs numbers generally, they keep looking very, very, very mediocre. >> i tell my folks back home, we can ignore the rates, ignore the revisions. the one question, the one question only is how many jobs did we create last quarter? until that number is 200,000 or 250,000 i think there's a lot to be concerned with. >> the one thing i'll ask, though, i know you're not here for y
